Plant Reading and Journaling

The science and art of growing plants is called "horticulture." Do some plant reading and journaling, and maybe you'll grow a green thumb of your own.

What You'll Need:
  • Books about plants
  • Pen
  • Paper

There's a whole world of plants out there. At the library, find a book about plants, flowers, or gardening. See what you can learn.

Then, do something with what you learned. You might plant your first garden, or grow just one flower.

Afterward, write about the experience. Or, you might make a picture book showing the life cycle of a plant. Be sure to give the book a title and sign the author's name -- yours!
